Editors' review

Thanks to this program's step-by-step tips, managing your files and folders is as simple as a few clicks of your mouse. GoodSync successfully synchronized important files between folders on our computer, as well as on our USB device.

To a novice, the user interface might appear a bit overwhelming; however, step-by-step pop-up windows will quickly guide you through navigating the program. All we had to do was browse for the two folders that we wanted to synchronize. We were even able to browse for files on external devices, including a USB thumb drive. The program quickly analyzed our folders and displayed their contents into two separate panels. We were able to pick out the specific files to include in the synchronization and, using the Sync feature, we synced the folders so that they each contained the same files. We were able to view all of the changes, as well as any conflicts or errors. You can apply filters using the Program Options menu.

The program doesn't include a built-in help feature, but it does feature an online manual and FAQ through the publisher's Web site, and the 30-day trial is more than enough time to find your bearings. We highly recommend this file synchronization tool for all user levels.

    "Best file comparison and analysis synchronization tool."

    July 07, 2014   |   By snakyjake5

    Version: GoodSync


    Can detect and discern file changes versus file corruption.
    Good comparison rules and analysis to detect changes.
    Good use of filters.


    Minor con: Since Amazon S3 charges by storage used (stored and transmitted), I would like the software to tell me exactly what is being transmitted and stored. The software will tell me the storage, but not the transmitted. So far this hasn't been an expensive issue, but it is something I would like to monitor.

    The UI is full of powerful and useful information, but might be better organized.

    The file analysis is very advanced and can be complex depending on the rules used. This is going to require you learning and doing some experimentation. I did my experimentation, and it does work just like I want it to (and no other alternative has been able to do that).


    What this software will do that few others will do is sync between my local files and files stored on Amazon S3 cloud by comparing file attributes and checksums. What I wanted to do is not only backup files to the cloud, but I wanted to detect when I had file corruption on my local hard drive. Detecting this can be tricky, because I also wanted to avoid false positives. So this software can detect legitimate changes and also detect corruption, signal to the user, suggest or automate an action.

    I've tried many other alternatives, and this has been the best.
